Forum: GratefulDead Subject: IT IS EASY TO TAKE SHOTS

it is easy to take shots at the phish. it is easy to take shots at the grateful dead, or really anyone or thing you care to tear down... "dylan? i cant STAAAAAAND that guy... he cant sing, he doesn't play any guitar solos, and his songs have too many words in them....."

the important point here is that they ARE NOT a GD imitation musically and yet they attract a similar crowd: people looking for something other than just a concert.

think he is a weasel or not, trey can spit fire on the guitar, and mike and fish are a first rate bomb dropping rhythm team (not to discredit page). there are many instances when they rage..... YEAH, they're gonna sing some shitty lyrics in a whiny white guy voice. and for this band, the more absurd the lyrics the better... i REALLY don;t like it when they try to have a serious poetic/narrative line... the trey "SONGS" -- those are generally not very good....
